633 Possible Causes for Central Respiratory Failure

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    It is estimated that about one-third of alcohol-related deaths are due to accidents and another 14% are from intentional injury.In addition to respiratory failure and accidents[] […] caused by effects on the central nervous system, alcohol causes significant metabolic derangements.[]

  • Ondine Syndrome

  • Wolfram Syndrome

    Patients with Wolfram syndrome usually die due to central respiratory failures caused by brain stem atrophy in their third or at the beginning of their fourth decade of life[] Here we present a 44 year old patient who presented to our hospital with central respiratory failure, cognitive impairment, ataxia and parkinsonism and was first diagnosed[] […] secondary to recurrent infections and central respiratory failure.[]

  • Hyperventilation

    […] the respiratory muscles.[] Chronic heart failure and dwelling at high altitude are classical conditions in which CSA is induced by hyperventilation.[] Central sleep apnoea (CSA) is a disorder characterised by repetitive episodes of decreased ventilation due to complete or partial reduction in the central neural outflow to[]

  • Acute Hyperventilation

    Some nonpulmonary causes are aspirin toxicity, anxiety, fever, metabolic acidosis, inflammation of the central nervous system, gram-negative septicemia, and hepatic failure[] See also metabolic acidosis , respiratory acidosis . observations Deep and rapid breathing at rates as high as 40 breaths per minute is a major sign of respiratory alkalosis[]

  • Nodular Malignant Melanoma

    The general state of health of the patient deteriorated, and after multiple epileptic-like crises and having detected a brain metastasis, he died of central respiratory failure[]

  • Hyponatremia

    Hypercapnic respiratory failure is due to central respiratory depression and is often the first sign of impending herniation.[] Hyponatremia is also found to associate with other conditions such as respiratory failure, hypocalcemia, and hyperparathyroidism ( 5 ).[] Patients with symptomatic hyponatremia can develop hypoxia by 2 different mechanisms: noncardiogenic pulmonary edema and hypercapnic respiratory failure.[]

  • Toxoplasmosis

    Multiorgan involvement with respiratory failure and shock. Differential diagnosis [ 17 ] This depends on the clinical scenario.[] With suspected toxoplasmic encephalitis, the differential diagnosis includes central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma, progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy and other infections[]
